2 Tips


If you have a glue gun with a removable tip, it might be easier to remove before molding.



Can someone weigh in on why the standard glue gun design doesn't provide for a more stable base? Once I apply glue I often need two hands to attach pieces, and I have to quickly set the tool down. But it's always unwieldy and falling over, mostly due to the weight of the cord. I don't know why the average glue gun design has never evolved to take this into account.

A variation of this idea is to use a spring, like you see in soldering iron holders, with a piece of ceramic tile to catch the drips.

Another cheap n' easy solution is to cut a piece of PVC of appropriate diameter to a stable base. This also works well with drills.

Glue a rare earth magnet to the base of the glue gun, and place it on a suitable surface - it's worked for me for years. You usually have two hands available when you pick yo the glue gun, if not, screw the metal surface down...

and that sir, is f-ing clever. I have mine hanging from my powerstrip (above to keep cords from tripping me up) but I still have to watch where it swings.

thanks for the tip.

It might be worth mentioning that I also have a block of Post-It Notes beneath the nozzle - when the inevitable glue drips build up, tear off the top one and start afresh...

Duncan, most brilliant glue gun reply evah!

ok, now you're just showing off with the ideas. :)

that's actually pretty darn clever too.

When you've been 'hacking/making' for 50+ years, you learn to make life easier for yourself...

Lord knows I have enough magnets. I'll give it a shot. Thanks.
